  • Description

    Item title reads: "In the glorious winter sunshine. Grace and agility on skates at Winter Season's greatest Ice Carnival."

    St. Moritz, Switzerland

    M/s of couples dancing with an orchestra, with the band playing in the foreground and the outdoor rink seen beyond. This is followed by a couple dancing in 18th century period costume, like Cinderella, wearing a hooped skirt, and the Prince. A man then performs a series of elegant turns wearing dark riding jacket, breeches and riding boots, skating on stilts. Finally a man skates and jumps over a line of more than 8 barrels on the ice.

    Note : very elegant skating and great stunts.
